You did not see Him, yet you love Him; and still without seeing Him, you are already filled with a joy so glorious that it cannot be described, because you believe; and you are sure of the end to which your faith looks forward, that is, the salvation of your souls.
– 1 Peter 1:8-9
God the Father has destined us to a marvelous heritage in heaven – to attain this we need to love and believe in Jesus Christ our Lord, and to follow His teachings.
It is through the action of the Holy Spirit, that we get to know and love and believe in Jesus. It is the Holy Spirit who fills us with hope in the Lord, and who strengthens our faith through personal revelation which is beyond normal, human understanding. Through the action of the Spirit, our heart recognises its Maker and jumps with gladness and joyful yearning for Him who is the Beginning and the End.
Thank You, Holy Spirit, for Your consolation;
and for Your encouragement, which helps me open my eyes to the Truth,
and enlightens my mind to gladly recognise my Glorious Maker – my Lord and my God.
Thank You, Holy Spirit, for filling me with the indescribable joy
of knowing the Lord
and of letting Him reign in my heart.
